Riding lessons

We offer programmes of learning, improving your riding or just the sheer enjoyment of riding throughout the year.

Most of our horse riding events need to be booked to avoid disappointment.

Sunshine Riding accepts Cash, Mastercard, Visa,  and Debit Cards for lesson payment, but we don’t take AmEx, Diners Club or cheques.

Hacks

All riders must be confident in walk, trot, and canter of various paces. Be able to control the horse in a confident manner and be confident riding out in the countryside across fields in open order.

Tasters

A chance get up close to the horse and get a chance sit on the horse and learn to walk and steer and stop and see if you enjoy the experience and progress to a full lesson.
